Watch the Foam Cycle system in action!
They say it can't be recycled.
We're here to prove them wrong. Our innovative and patent-pending Foam Cycle container recycling system allows counties, municipalities, schools, colleges and businesses to collect, recycle, process and market Expanded Polystyrene (EPS #6 ) – also known as EPS, PS, Styrofoam or simply Foam.
"The Foam Cycle recycling system has provided a tool for managing a difficult material at the Sussex County MUA Landfill. Collection and processing of the EPS was seamlessly integrated into the daily operations. County residents and businesses are excited to finally have a location they can bring their foam to be recycled"
